Wooden Table Lamps
Wood table lighting with a classic and rustic
Wooden table lamps add a country charm or a traditional
look to a room. They are easy to maintain and come in a wide range of styles, which makes them suitable for
almost any room. Even a modernistic room style can make use of wooden table lamps if they have been painted
and have a new unique style to them.
Wooden table lamps that have retained their natural
wood look can add a warm glow to a room and settle it down if it is too busy. They are nice to add to a room that
is going to be used for relaxation.
You can get wooden table lamps made from wood such as
Walnut, Butternut, Oak, Cherry, Red-Birch or Maple. Almost any kind of wood can make a nice lamp. It is a matter of
personal preference which one you choose the decision should be based on whether a light or dark tone would fit
best in the room.
Wooden table lamps are easier to take care of than
other types of lamps. They do not require as much dusting since the dust doesn't show up on them as easily as it
would on a ceramic lamp. Brass lamps can start to pit and discolor within a year, even with protection. They
require special brass cleaners, which can be costly. Ceramic lamps are low maintenance, but can break
When you choose wooden lamps they can last the course
of your lifetime. They are virtually impossible to break and do not wear out like brass ones. They can be easily
cleaned with a damp cloth, and if you see that the varnish is wearing down on them you can easily re-varnish them
yourself with a few swift coats applied with a small paintbrush.
You can even make your own wooden table lamps. There
are instructions on how to make them available on the Internet, and one can be constructed in a couple of hours.
This can be a fun family project and be kept as a family heirloom for many generations. There is always room for
one more lamp in any house.
The price on wooden lamps depends on what kind of wood
it is made of, the style and where you purchase it. You can get a lamp custom-made for you online, you can find
them used in secondhand stores or you can purchase them at a furniture store.
Wooden table lamps can have a very chunky heavy look to
them, which is great if you are looking for a country and western style type of look. They can also be handcrafted
in a fashionable elegant design that works well for a traditional or contemporary decor.
Whatever look you are trying to achieve you can get it
with wooden table lamps. They are a versatile lamp that can be used for many years to come, are low maintenance and
can be found in a style to meet anyone's budget.
